Structured Chaos

2012
public wooden installation
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

For this public installation area Quinze created a wooden installation referring to his theme of “structured chaos”. “There’s no chaos, only structure”. A tagline in some of his work expressing his inner self and how he describes his thoughts. To him there is no chaos, everything is structured even in the chaos you can only find structure.

At first sight this monumental wooden structure of 18 meters high seems a visual chaos with mixed orange and natural colored wooden slats. Yet at a closer look one will notice all wooden planks are put on a specific place having a precise function. Seemingly constantly seeking for an equilibrium the structure never loses its balance. It’s almost like you can see the installation moving. Neon lights are hung in the sculpture to accentuate the feeling of movement.
